Brunswick Maine Blueberry
Vaccinium agustifolium 'Brunswick'
An exceptionally hardy, low-growing blueberry, Brunswick is loaded with medium-sized, sky-blue berries that have a powerful, old-fashioned blueberry flavor. Great for drying or using in muffins and pancakes! The dense foliage turns vivid shades of orange and carmine in fall.
Originally from Nova Scotia, this northern lowbush variety grows vigorously in notoriously cold climates. Shearing the top 2/3 of growth every 3rd year can stimulate lots of productive new growth and blooming. Reliably self-fertile, but will produce more with a different variety as a pollinizer. Prefers moist, acidic soils, lots of organic matter, and full to part sun. 1000+ chill hours.
